Today's Features

  • As soon as I saw the preview for “9,” I knew this was a movie I had to see. Movies that combine fantasy and surreal elements are right up my alley.

    When I saw the movie had come to the Reel Deal, I wasted no time. After watching it, I suggest you do not waste any time in seeing this movie either.

  • Saturday marks the beginning of the Los Alamos Concert Association’s Musical Stimulus season and features a performance by TAGI, the acclaimed clarinet, violin, cello and piano quartet. The performance will begin at 8 p.m. at Duane Smith Auditorium.  Come early for the pre-concert lecture and stay late to visit with the artists at the post-concert reception.

  • At 7 p.m. Friday in Duane Smith Auditorium, the Los Alamos Community Winds launches its 10th Anniversary Season with “The Music of Leonard Bernstein.”

    There is much in store at the LACW concerts this year. In addition to presenting the usual variety of challenging literature, including a performance of the “Firebird Suite” by Igor Stravinsky, the repertoire for this season will reach back into the archives of the LACW’s library.

  • Something new is wafting into the Guitars and Gateaux series. A different sound will be floating around Fuller Lodge from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday. It is a sound that should tantalize people’s ears and draw them into the lodge to hear more.

    The source of this music will be Los Amigos which, on Thursday, will be comprised of Omar Villanueva, who plays the guitar, requinto — or a smaller, higher pitched guitar — and sings, and Roberto Gomez, who sings and plays guitar.

  • Life feels pretty wonderful when a plan comes together. This week, a plan some would say about a decade in the making, will work its magic. The Los Alamos Medical Center, the Los Alamos Council on Cancer and the American Cancer Society will open the Cancer Corner Resource Center at LAMC Tuesday.

    The ribbon cutting will take place from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and many volunteers are hoping  Fred Gross will be in attendance to see a vision come to fruition.

    Gross and his wife Sue had that vision almost

  • This week we look at Asset #23, homework. According to the search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they report doing at least one hour of homework every school day.” Homework is also one of the five Commitments to Learning Assets.

    My first reaction to the word homework is help! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it is usually fussed about far longer than the time it actually takes to do it.

  • There is something for all ages at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.

    Children can explore nature through the Critter Club and adults can receive insight on growing fruit in their gardens.

    The launch of Critter Club, an after-school kids’ nature club, will occur Monday. The club will meet from 4-5 p.m. every Monday at PEEC. Students in grade first through third are invited to join.

  • Taste the zip of a Feta crumble tucked into a fresh tomato. Smell the golden spanikopita stuffed with spinach. Take a bite of baklava from the recipe of YiaYia Maria Marros and savor the flaky layers of honey and nuts. 

    At 5 p.m. Sunday, the members of the Saint Dimitri of Rostov Orthodox Church will host a dinner for the community where they will serve a sampling of ethnic and Mediterranean dishes.

    After every liturgy, the families at Saint Dimitri’s will have a meal together.

  • A new stake presidency was established for the Santa Fe Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    Elder Russell M. Nelson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, along with Elder Jonathan C. Roberts of the Quorum of the Seventy, traveled from Salt Lake City to establish  the new presidency.

     The new  presidency was made during the stake conference  held Aug. 29-30.

  • A lot of images are associated with Ruby K’s Yum Runs. Young children bolting down Central Avenue during the children’s 1K run, older runners stretching and warming up for the 5K and 10K runs, local business providing support through refreshments and T-shirts.

    It’s an event that brings multiple generations together in the early morning hours. And while fun times are definitely strong components of the event, this event comes with a significant purpose.
